At the WTC Memorial ceremony you saw current President Biden and Barack Obama, but no Trump.
Where is he on the 20th anniversary of the worst attack ever on American soil? Well, he’s got another event to go to, a paying gig as a guest commentator for the Evander Holyfield vs. Vitor Belfort fight.
Trump’s special “unfiltered boxing commentary” will be broadcast as part of the PPV on FITE TV taking place at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Hollywood, Fla.
Trump was quoted in a press release saying,
“I love great fighters and great fights
I look forward to seeing both this Saturday night and sharing my thoughts ringside. You won’t want to miss this special event.”
The one-term, twice-impeached, former POTUS is billed to “host and commentate” the event, which serves as Holyfield’s return to action for the first time in over a decade.
Former heavyweight champion Holyfield, 58, comes out of retirement to box ex-UFC champ Belfort after his original opponent, Oscar De La Hoya, was forced to drop out after contracting COVID. Belfort competes in only his second pro boxing match after his 2006 debut.
TMZ is reporting that Trump will bank an “obscene” payday for his fight night duties, described as
“millions and millions”
He’ll also gets a private jet (doesn’t he have one?) to take him to and from Hollywood, Florida which is so close to Palm Beach and Mar-Lago you could taxi there.
The report also suggests some people connected to the event are “downright angry” that Trump and his son, Don Jr., were added to this weekend’s “alternative” commentary desk.
The event is PPV and costs $49.99. Hey, what’s on Netflix tonight…?
According to The Daily Mail,
Trump paid a visit to NYPD and FDNY officers on the 20th anniversary of the September 11 terrorist attacks, after deciding not to make his own solo trip to Ground Zero.
The former president surprised officers at NYPD’s 17th Precinct in East Midtown in Manhattan, New York City, Saturday afternoon where he posed for photos with a group of cops and held a brief question and answer session.
Trump was the only surviving president not to attend any of the three crash sites or any of the official memorial ceremonies on the 20th anniversary of America’s darkest day.
